  • Mzymta River-fast mountain river! It really long itself from flowing from the Caucasus Mountains in the Black Sea-a whopping 80 km =) it empties into many rivers for less. The river is very different. It can be transparent, blue and can be muddy and washed off with plenty of trees after the rainy season. Especially interesting to see the confluence of the most affordable for all tourists this watch as the Achipse empties into the Mzymta (twist with Gazprom's Slides). And by the way, Laura is also a river, but it empties into Achipse on the territory of the Caucasian reserve, and then Achipse empties into the Mzymta. All mountain river is very beautiful! recommend!

  • Has reserved for a group of 11 students Mzymta river rafting on the site raftingsochi. RF what to say ... All impression from Sochi spoiled. Prices are unreasonably high. Money to take forward. Paid 800 rubles per person. On the phone we were assured that this price includes bathhouse. Alloy passed normally, the river is quite boring. At the finish of all wanted to visit the promised bath, which, in the end, it was not and money paid for it we were not returned. I doubt that the organizers have a license for this activity at all. No payment documents do not issue, there is no ticket office. In General, I do not recommend. I think there are other places in Sochi, where you can spend the money. And students who have paid for this alloy, is unlikely to return to Sochi. The nasty residue left. Of course, I had to immediately suspect the catch at the time of payment. This is such a naive and do business.
